We would like to thank all of our patients who have been so welcoming to our medical students. This is a very important role for the practice in the development of future GP’s.
If you do have concerns or feel uncomfortable with a medical student sitting in on your consultation please see reception before your consultation. There is no obligation to have a student sit in your consultation and any decision to decline is respected without question.
Thank you once again from The Fleet Medical Centre Team and Medical Students

All significant events are reviewed in the monthly Quality Meetings with all clinical members of the practice.In the past year there have been no significant events relating to infection control.
The practice has recently engaged with the CCG to gain an independent inspection and audit of the infection control of the practice, this was conducted on the 14th November 2018 and we are awaiting the full results of this audit. These results will be published and an action plan created of any improvements that are required following this audit.
